Carl Edwards won the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Phoenix International Raceway. Jimmie Johnson was second followed by Denny Hamlin.
It was the first win for Edwards in 70 races. Edwards’ last win came at Las Vegas in 2011. After winning the race Edwards did his customary back-flip and then took a moment to celebrate with the fans.
Mark Martin sat on the pole for the race becoming the second oldest driver to even win a pole in NASCAR’s top series. He would lead for the early part of the race but had to pit for right side tires which placed him back in the field.
Danica Patrick struggled all weekend with her car and cut a right side tire just past halfway ending her day. She was running 32nd at the time of the accident which also collected the car of David Ragan.
